Reach (compassion projects)
Compassion has always been a key biblical value for us at the Vineyard as we work among the poor, broken and vulnerable within our community. It is our belief that the church should be at the forefront of tackling the poverty that exists on our doorstep.
All Reach projects are a response to various needs encountered in our community. The support we offer is available to everyone in the community, regardless of belief, race or sexual orientation but they are particularly aimed to those who are disadvantaged and suffering financially due to low income, unemployment, or disability.
Welcoming and helping refugees, asylum seekers, and people facing displacement by war or conflict.
New beginnings takes the form of a weekly tea party where women new to Sheffield and unfamiliar with British language, customs and Henderson’s Relish can meet friendly faces. This is our response to the command of Scripture to ease the plight of those in need of refuge. God says he, ‘loves the foreigner residing among you’. (Deuteronomy 10:18)
Declaring and demonstrating the Kingdom of God amongst the people of Sheffield.
We give in response to what we have been given and because we want for everyone to know the fantastic life, that starts now and lasts forever, offered to everyone through Jesus Christ. ‘We love because he first loved us’. (1 John 4:19)
Providing practical help for the ignored, hungry and marginalised in Sheffield.
Our hope is to work alongside other Sheffield based organisations to help people who are homeless in obedience to God’s command, ‘share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless.’ (Isaiah 58:7)
